Example of a Challenge

We would like to recreate Mitsubishi logo in TikZ. To this end, follow these instructions:

  • Use polar coordinates  (details of coordinates are shown below)
  • Use fill command and close the path with --cycle
  • Draw only one diamond and rotate it with different angles
Mitsubishi-Logo

Modify the following code and compile it to get the above result:



\documentclass[border=0.2cm]{standalone}

% Loading TikZ
\usepackage{tikz}

\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}

% Diamond 1
	\fill[red] (0,0) -- (0:2) -- (-30:3.5);

\end{tikzpicture}

\end{document}

About me

I am Benmiloud Mohammed, founder of latexdraw.com,  personal blog about drawing illustrations in LaTeX using different packages such as TikZ, Pgfplots and CircuitikZ. 

During my PhD studies, I faced difficulties when it comes to drawing technical illustrations for my research papers. After many attempts, I found TikZ  the best option for me. From that time, I am using it and encourage LaTeX users to do so. 

It's in TikZ so it must be beautiful
